Bernadette L Clevenger Seeing patients at Ways to Wellness as part of the Functional Medicine Program

Care Philosophy:
I enjoy collaborating with patients to develop a care plan that takes into account the whole person. At the center of this plan is self-care supported by traditional medicine and complementary therapies. My role is to help patients understand what choices they have in their journey to wellness and support the healing process.
